This rainy day affair was filled with laughter and love, and didn’t keep us from having a good time. It was supposed to be thunder-storming so bad that day.

These two are a total modern love, that wanted an adventurous engagement session! They met via Tinder but both of them specifically had on their profile that they weren’t looking for a hook up.
